I have many years of experience teaching clarinettists of all ages from beginner to diploma standard. My teaching focusses on building a secure technical foundation, by helping students develop the ability to really listen to themselves and practise productively. I use my extensive knowledge of music history and historical performance practice to bring repertoire to life and reveal the historical ‘secrets’ that can help us master even the most difficult repertoire.
After many years of teaching in and around London, I have now relocated to West Yorkshire, where my teaching activities are focussed on my work at the University of Huddersfield. During 2017 I will also be teaching on residential courses hosted by the Jeune Orchestre de l’Abbaye, Saintes; the University of Oxford; and Benslow Music. Please contact me for more details.
